Performance in the GranTurismo comes courtesy of a detuned version of the MC20 sports car's V6 powerplant. With 483 hp and 361 lb-ft on tap from the inline-six, the Maserati GranTurismo Moden can sprint from 0-60 mph in 3.7 seconds. This is aided by the all-wheel-drive system and launch control, which will see the curvaceous coupe barrel on to a top speed of 188 mph. Acceleration is rapid, but if you still want more, you'll want to look at the 542-hp Trofeo version of the GT, which we review separately. The Modena isn't anything to sniff at, however, and highway merging, overtaking, and speeding up are effortless.
First seen in the MC20 hypercar, the engine in the new Maserati GranTurismo Modena is a 3.0L twin-turbocharged 90-degree V6 with F1-derived dual-chamber combustion technology and twin spark plugs per cylinder. It develops 483 hp and 361 lb-ft of torque, with the latter peaking at just 3,000 rpm, making for a flat torque curve and virtually lag-free response. The only transmission choice is an eight-speed automatic and all-wheel drive is standard. No manual transmission or rear-wheel-drive option is offered.

The EPA has not yet measured the gas mileage of the Maserati GranTurismo, so mpg estimates were not available from the agency at the time of writing. Considering that an MC20 with RWD and the same basic engine returns 15/25/18 mpg on the EPA's city/highway/combined cycles, we're not expecting much better than 16 mpg overall from the GranTurismo in view of the fact that it's bigger, heavier by almost 700 lbs, and has standard AWD.
Based on this guess, its fuel range should max out at around 300 miles with a fuel capacity of 18.5 gallons. The European estimate works out to 23 mpg combined, but that is likely to be very optimistic, given that EPA figures are always a lot worse than European WLTP figures, so this cannot be used as a realistic guideline.
